2nd grade families,
I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! This will be a short week due to a half day on Friday, October 6th. Also Monday, October 9th will be a student holiday. I will be sending out a sign-up sheet for Fall conferences that will begin on Friday after early release.
Our week will include the following learning:
Reading: Setting and Summarizing a story. Students will learn how to use the setting, passage of time and other elements to help summarize (retell) what they are reading.
Writing: Students will learn to use dialogue in their paper. Students will also learn how to write a lead (or beginning) and apply to their small moments paper.
Spelling Pattern: 'ng' and 'nk' blends - wink, sing, sink, king, long, sung, hang, blank, wing, junk, think, bring, stung, rink, blink, honk, song, along, went, left
Math: Students will work with numbers up to 1,200 by comparing numbers (greater than / less than), composing and decomposing numbers. For example, students will learn that 1,200 can be written as (1) thousand, (2) hundreds, (0) tens, and (0) ones OR it can be written as (12) hundreds. Our place value test will be October 11th. A review will be sent home before the long weekend.
